Our “green Brexit” is under threat. We need a strong watchdog that can uphold environmental law

The government's decision on whether to fund the Wylfa nuclear plant is due any day now. Let's tell them to walk away before it’s too late. Sign the petition >> Then share this thread to get the word out 👇 11/11

Now here’s the good news: there’s an alternative, and it’s ready to go. Offshore wind power is already lighting up millions of UK homes, and it's cheaper and quicker to build than nuclear. 9/

And here's one on the dodgy reactor design they're planning to use for the Wylfa plant: Trust me, you don't want to put public money anywhere near this thing. 8/

But Hitachi wants the government to help fund the construction of their new plant, which means the risk would be on us. If something goes wrong, we could all pay the price. 6/

If you can believe it, the rumoured new deal with Hitachi would be even worse. With Hinkley, we’d only pay for the power it actually generates - even if that power is ten years late and way overpriced. 5/

Do you remember when the government made that terrible deal with EDF, guaranteeing a high price for the power from their new Hinkley plant? 4/

Hitachi are threatening to abandon the Wylfa project if the government doesn’t fund it, so ministers are under a lot of pressure to offer them a deal. 3/

Hitachi are trying to build a new nuclear plant called Wylfa, on Anglesey in Wales. Like nearly all new nuclear projects, it's running way over budget, and private investors have turned their backs. 2/

The government says test drilling for oil and gas should be as easy as building a garden wall, so they’re relaxing planning rules to help it along 🙃 Local people don’t want it. The country doesn’t need it. And the climate can’t take it.
